Columbia’s Family | Child | Baby | Newborn Photographer – 2010 datesMay 19, 2010
Thanks for visiting my blog! I don’t say that enough. So let me take this opportunity to tell you how much I appreciate your visit, your blog love (comments), and your support. I especially love the blog love!! I can’t help it. It makes me feel good to know that you enjoyed what you saw here:)
No sessions to blog this week. I had a couple of sessions that have been postponed due to weather and allergies. That’s ok. I still have lots of work. I am creating some great new coffee table books and proof boxes, a deluxe album, custom dvd slideshows and custom cases, some jewelry pieces, and prints. These are the things that keep me busy when I am not actually out shooting. But I did want to go ahead and blog this week and I’ll try to do it again before my session next week.
Next week is a huge week personally and professionally. My daughter graduates from elementary school next week. I just can’t believe it! I still remember the first day of first grade like it was yesterday. I see her smiling at me in her little red, white and blue jean jumper and her long red hair….that was so curly back then…..pulled up in doggie ears with red ribbons. She was so proud to be a big kid! I hope to have some hands to hold on to during this ceremony. It is going to be really rough! I couldn’t be more proud of her, but watching them grow up is really bittersweet, isn’t it?
At the end of the week I will be doing some traveling for training and am completely thrilled! I’ll be meeting up with an incredible group of women photographers and we will have training opportunities in several areas. I’m most excited about the newborn and child segments. And there will be late night pizza and editing parties too. Yeah, maybe that doesn’t sound too exciting to you……but I can hardly wait. I’m hoping to come back from my time with these women inspired and excited to use all that I learn! I will also be attending some training in June out west with one of my favorite photographers! It will be some pretty amazing and intense training and I’ll blog more about that as the dates approach.
I need to go ahead and make some announcements about available dates for 2010 also. Thank you for making this such a great year so far! I have had a wonderful time working with previous clients again and meeting some wonderful new clients. August is such a funny month this year! With the bookings I took today, I only have one available session space for August. So, if this is an important time for you, (ie you have a due date in August!), please book right away. November is the next month that will book up. I have 2 appointment spaces available in November for print delivery available before the winter holidays. I have a few openings left for June and July still.
I think that will wrap it up tonight! Thank you again, clients, perspective clients, friends and family of clients, supportive photographers, and basic blog-stalkers….you all rock! Oh and here is an image I took of my “other” girl last week…..just because:)
